Here is the description from Amazon:
“Former SEAL sniper Cody Roberts has returned from Afghanistan with too many demons and a simple wish: to be left alone. Working for K2 Special Services, caring for the war dogs he rescued, playing his guitar—that’s all he wants to do. But Cody is as protective as his nickname, “Dog,” suggests. A man like that can’t sit back when he realizes the beautiful veterinarian next door is being targeted by an unknown enemy.
Riley Austin is desperate to find out who’s poisoning her animal patients, and she’s stunned by her mysterious neighbor’s suggestion that it’s personal. But Cody makes her feel something else, too: a powerful attraction. He insists he’s no good for her, but those haunted eyes and that chiseled body tell Riley that surrendering to their mutual lust is worth the risk. And despite his conditions—no falling for each other, no regrets once it’s over—she’ll fight to love him just as fiercely as he’ll fight to save her.”
Cody is a fascinating hero. He’s a Navy Seal hero to most people with the possible exception of his parents — two anti-war professors. His parents sure packed his baggage for him. If Cody bonds with a dog in a war zone, it’s for life. He brings his dogs home.
Riley grew up in foster homes and became a protector of animals. She’s an admirable veterinarian who must uncover the mystery of why some of her patients are being poisoned. She’s dedicated to all species but chose to share her home with cats. This book reminded me of the question: What do you call a veterinarian who treats only one species? Answer: a physician.
Their pasts converge at just the right time in the present to propel them to the future together. I don’t want to include any spoilers but I have to say this book has one of the sweetest endings I have ever read:)
